Welcome to my fundraising page for BARCStoberfest 2018! If you’ve never heard of BARCS before, then greetings! We’ve clearly never met! Haha! Although I might have cleverly and oh so subtly steered our conversation towards BARCS in the past one or twelve times, I might not have told you just how incredible this place is, and why I feel it is deserving of pretty much all of my free time.

BARCS is the largest shelter in Maryland, taking in an average of 11,000 homeless dogs and cats, and 1,000 exotic, farm, and wildlife animals each year, yet so far in 2018, they have maintained a 91% save rate (live release rate). Thirteen years ago, before BARCS took over, the save rate was a dismal TWO percent! Thank goodness for BARCS.

BARCS not only takes in homeless animals and finds them new families, they also support Baltimore families with the low-cost vaccine clinic every month, the pet food pantry, the TNR program, the dog socialization and training they provide to adopters, low cost spay/neuter, community outreach, and more. All this, and their budget it miniscule. Nothing goes to waste

I have never seen or heard of an organization do so much with so little.

I could go on and on, but if you know me, I have, and will, in person (and will probably show you my favorite pup of the moment). I urge you, please donate. I cannot emphasize enough that every single dollar helps. BARCS prides themselves on responsible spending and low overhead, with $.96 from every $1 going directly to the animals they serve.
